The village of Castril de la Peña in the county of Granada has a beautiful river, Río Castril which is ideal for Canyoning, the sport of descending a river from it’s source. It varies in altitude from 800 to 2138 meters and is 12696 meters in length. The river has some of the most stunning countryside in Andalusia (Andalucía).

The Sierra Castril Natural Park is to the South East of the Cazorla,Segura and Las Villas Natural park. It is a landscape carved by canyons, waterfalls, numerous peaks, grottos and galleries. Due to it’s rugged nature and climate give rise to ideal conditions for a wide and diverse flora and fauna.

Castril is a typical small Granadian town with stepped houses and steep streets. The centre of Castril is noted for the homogenous nature of it’s houses which are very much in harmony with the natural environment.

Granada

Granada has to be one of my favorite cities in Spain. The mixture of Catholic, Christian, Jewish and Muslim cultures that have ruled it over the past 1500 years give it one of the most diverse mixtures of architecture within a single city.
Granada CapitalTravel in the city is easy, you seem to be able to get anywhere for one euro. It is under an hour from the Mediterrean coast, the Costa Tropical. The Alhambra palace, a Moorish citadel , is at the heart of Granada Town on the river Darro.

Tapas

Quite simply put Tapa just means a lid or to cover something. I have been told that many years ago it started in Almería by people putting a saucer on top of their beer to keep the flies out of it. (A very sensible idea as I wouldn’t give a fly any of my beer) Later this developed and somehow food was put on to the saucer, thus the beer had been tapered. Also this was a gesture from the proprietor and enabled clients to stay longer. Tapas were originally free and in Almería and Granada they still are. In other counties you may be lucky to get a few nuts or a couple of olives.
